Future Games Cheat Sheet

Shooter Hunt
National Crosschecker

The PBR Future Games are now less than a week away, and with over 500 of the top, uncommitted underclassmen preparing to show off their skills in Indianapolis, On the Hunt has a collection of players from each team to take a look at before things kick off. Most of these players were featured in previous articles (some longer ago, and now with better statistics), and are worth noting. This page will serve as a “cheat sheet” of sorts in giving coaches/scouts at least a sampling of the talent that will be on hand.

Baumler’s athleticism stood out at the event, and given his long frame and strong arm, he will likely be one of the more talked about recruits throughout the summer. Standing 6-foot-2, 187-pounds with lean strength throughout, Baumler comfortably touched 90 mph with his fastball without so much as breaking a sweat. Working linear down the mound with a still-head at release, Baumler delivered fastballs at 89-90 out of a high ¾ slot without much use of his lower-half. The pitch featured heavier arm side life at times, and he was able to routinely throw it to the bottom of the zone. His slider was tight at 77-79, and looks to be a future out pitch moving forward. It was thrown with fastball hand speed, and featured shorter, late-breaking action. Also a 6.81-runner in the 60-yard dash and an excellent defender in the outfield, Baumler’s athleticism should allow him to continue making quick advancements in coming years. At the plate, the right-handed hitter has a simple approach with a short stride that allows his hands to work the barrel fast, uphill through the zone with strength. Still a bit raw, he should be even better by the time the Future Games rolls around in August. Overall, Baumler is certainly one of the top athletes in the class, and as he continues to get more game action against higher level competition, expect him to blossom into one of the better prospects as well.
